Ezra Miller, star of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, was detained early Monday in Hilo, Hawaii, after they allegedly swore at guests, disturbed a woman's karaoke set, and lunged at a man playing darts.

On Sunday, around 11.30 p.m. local time, police arrived at the scene and arrested Miller, accusing him of disorderly conduct and harassment. After posting $500 bail, they were freed from police custody.Miller is best recognised for his part as Credence Barebone/Aurelius Dumbledore in the "Harry Potter" spin-off series "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," in addition to his appearance in "Justice League."

throat and wrestling her to the ground in the video shared online. Staff removed Miller out of the premises, but no police were called.
